Fonds vert: Five projects approved for funding

March 28, 2023

Last fall, for the third time since its creation, the Fonds vert launched a call for projects to receive environmental, sustainable development and/or active transportation projects.


Five community and municipal projects were selected. These projects will receive financial assistance to help them carry out their project.


Selected community projects:

  • Hendrick Foundation Monarch Way Station: project to create a garden for the reproduction and migration of monarch butterflies (Monarch Way Station) as well as a development for the public aimed at raising awareness, particularly through informative panels.
  • Green and active mobility at the CPE: installation of a bicycle rack to promote active transportation among the families and educators of the CPE Montessori.
  • Increasing active transportation to all summer programming at Cascades Club: promotion of active transportation by raising awareness among the youth in the summer program through the creation of bike-related activities and events.
  • Feasibility Study: Increasing capacity for forest and nature school programming in Chelsea Quebec: a feasibility study to determine the potential for creating a forest school for 2-4 year olds and an additional program for 4-12 year olds in Chelsea.

Selected municipal project:

  • Rain barrel incentive: a pilot project to provide financial incentive to Chelsea citizens for the purchase of rain barrels to promote the conservation of the drinking water resource.
